    In general I leave mine on. Depends on what I am doing. I also use SBSettings so I can quickly enable/disable

    I think that when the Ipod sleeps then it will turn off the WiFi anyway. Either way, nothing to worry about!

    It wont hurt your iPhone. It will drain battery though.

    when your iphone/ipod is in sleep mode the wifi turns itself off. Even without the auto off feature, the only sideeffect of having wifi on is that battery will drain faster. it does not impact the phone at all.

    Your fine to leave the Wifi on.. As people have said it automatically turns off when the iPhone is asleep.. It will drain battery a little but less so if it is not connected to a network at the time
    Your iPhone will be fine
